The Geneva Lake Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of environmentally sensitive lands, open space and the unique character and quality of life of Walworth County, Wisconsin. Working with landowners, and government officials, the Conservancy advocates private and public land use and management decisions that assure responsible growth and protection of natural and historic resources.
Let’s Celebrate Earth Day’s 50th Birthday with BINGO, a Scavenger Hunt, Conservation@Home, Native Plants and watching the movie Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time. Click here to find out more about the Conservancy’s Earth Day activities.
During this stressful time, we urge you to go outdoors to enjoy the returning birds and early spring wildflowers. Our Hermansen Woods preserve on South Como Road and our Hansen Preserve on Highway ES are wonderful hikes and White River County Park, Town of Linn Park and Kishwaukétoe Nature Conservancy also offer excellent scenery and trails. An early visit to our Helen Rohner Children's Fishing Park will give you an opportunity to look for tadpoles in our new amphibian pond and small trout in Southwick Creek. More information on many of these preserves and parks is available under the “What We Do” tab, “GLC Public Preserves”.
We are grateful for your support of our mission. In this time of social distancing, we need the physical health benefits and mental wellness offered by nature more than ever before. Thank you for helping to preserve the scenic beauty of Walworth County, which nurtures all of us. We wish you and your families good health in the weeks ahead.
